Bettenroo (Acoustic, vocals)

Please join us for the debut Reserve performance of Bettenroo, a music duo from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Delivering great, recognizable tunes and some originals with skilled musicianship and spot-on vocals with blended harmonies.

Bettenroo delivers musical passion. Through their love of music, Anne Davey and Lori Jacobs immediately found a strong bond. Delaware residents since 2014, they met in 2011 in Pennsylvania when Lori joined Anne's newly formed band. Their effortless and perfectly blended vocals and instrumental intuition became immediately apparent. The exploration of songwriting and performing as a duo occurred as naturally as breathing. 

Ironically, Anne & Lori's experiences in life leading up to their musical connection are nearly polar opposites. Both, largely influenced by their mothers, Anne chose the most important role there is - raising children. Her sons are now grown and in the video and music industry. Anne's musical beginnings were as a flute player which evolved into an interest in bass when her boys were teenagers. Her natural ability to sing soulfully and with intent has been a lifelong part of her existence but only transferred to performance over the past 6 years. Her delivery is pitch perfect and her complex bass lines complement the signature Bettenroo blend. Meanwhile, Lori's mother who was told she wouldn't live past her teen years defied that verdict by making sure that her only daughter would fearlessly live each day to the fullest. For Lori that meant exploring the world, meet people, take chances, and bring a guitar. A multi-instrumentalist, she has been in various original musical endeavors from classical to hard rock playing trumpet, guitar or drums. In those various ventures, Lori's songs have been featured on WXPN (Philadelphia) and numerous other broadcasts including Voice of America Asia/Pacific. She's performed across the US, Europe, was a Lilith Fair finalist and uses her technical background to produce CD projects (including 'Live Out Loud').

Bettenroo's CD, 'Live Out Loud', is a collection of experiences from challenges that become lessons to joys that reinforce hope and charge the zest for life. The dynamics of Anne's soulful vocals and Lori's harmonies blend a tone that is more commonly reserved through family genetics. Their sound is meant to be shared. Come and experience Bettenroo at The Reserve!
